Deciem, The Ordinary & Deciem Chat Room

Deciem Black Friday Sale 2019

Deciem Black Friday

Around midday, 1st November 2019, Deciem went live with their Black Friday Sale and it´s quite different to the previous sales which you can read all about here.

23% off EVERYTHING until November 30th

The 23% discount applies to everything including The Ordinary which is rarely discounted. Don´t forget about all their other brands too.

The Ordinary

The Ordinary Deciem Chat Room

Over 60 products to choose from with a huge range of acids, retinols, retinoids, vitamin c, antioxidants, hydrators and oils, primers plus foundations. You can find lots of regimens here or ask Deciem for a regimen.


Hylamide is a great brand for those who want to keep their routine quite simple. The Core Regimen which consists of a cleanser, hydrating mist, face and eye serum is a great set for someone starting out and would make a fabulous gift too. Sub Q Skin is definitely a favourite of mine but please do chat with the Deciem Addicts in the Facebook Group.


NIOD stands for Non Invasive Options in Dermal and looks quite scary if you´re new to skincare, but it´s a fantastic brand especially for long term effects. NIOD is quite a bit more expensive than The Ordinary. You can often find discounts of up to 25% off all year round, if you miss out on this offer or if you decide to try it after reading reviews by the Deciem Addicts. Some of the favourites have to be CAIS2:1 Copper Amino Isolate Serum and MMHC2 Hyaluronic Acid Complex. Deciem have just launched NIOD CAIL, Copper Amino Isolate Lipid which is the most expensive Deciem product to date, but it does sound amazing covering a multitude of skin concerns. It seems to be out of stock at the moment so sign up for notifications if you can. Read reviews and watch videos on all the products here.

The Chemistry Brand

The Chemistry Brand covers anti-ageing products for the body, hand and feet. The hand and foot creams are amazing. Use the search box in the Facebook Group to see what everyone says about the products.

HIF Hair is Fabric

Deciem have scaled back this brand to just 2 products, Hydration Support and Volume Support. I personally haven´t used these products, so please do ask in the Facebook Group or use the search box and chat with others who have personally used them.

Other Deciem Brands

There are 3 other brands, Abnomaly that did have lip balms but seems to all be out of stock at the moment. Loofa is a new bath and body brand and Hippooh is the new baby brand which will both be launching in the future.

Tips / Problem Solving To Buying Online On The Deciem Website

A few people are mentioning problems when ordering. Either to do with payment issues or their basket keeps emptying.

Deciem Payment Issues

  • The credit card needs to be registered at the same address that you registered with Deciem. If you have changed address or buying for someone else pay on PAY PAL. Pay Pal is the easiest way to buy.

My Basket Keeps Emptying

  • Try clearing cookies first
  • Try another browser or using another device
  • Make sure you´re logged into Deciem in your original country. Sometimes changing countries cause the basket to empty.


When I first received this from Deciem a short while before the sale went live, all I could see was that Deciem was closing. Sheer panic came over me and then I read the rest…

DECIEM is closing all stores and its website on 29th November as it no longer feels comfortable being involved in a single day so heavily focussed around hyper-consumerism. We do not feel that Black Friday is an earth or consumer-friendly event as it encourages excessive purchasing of items, that consumers might not necessarily purchase if items weren’t discounted. 

As hyper consumerism poses one of the biggest threats to the planet through rush decisions due to fear of items selling out, DECIEM no longer want to be part of rushing purchasing decisions, something that was unintentionally created in previous years with products selling out before Black Friday even began. 

Instead, we’re offering a site wide discount of 23% starting today at 12noon that will run throughout the whole of the month of November, (excluding 29th when stores/website will close) to encourage more considered purchases. The discount will be valid across the entire DECIEM portfolio, including The Ordinary – something which is almost never discounted due to the pricing already being so fair and affordable. This will hopefully encourage customers to show slowly and to make educated, mindful decisions based on what their skincare regimen should be.
